Submission + - Small company bows out due to paten (fredsherbet.com)

codegen writes: Luma labs has decided stop selling (http://fredsherbet.com/2011/11/black-rapid-shut-down-luma-loop-with-broad-patent/) a camera sling due to the fact that a competitor has patented the design. Slings have been sold for guns and cameras for a while. The main innovation in the patent appears to be the insertion of a pad into the middle of the strap. Given that most camera bags have padding in the middle of the support strap, I would have thought the Patent office would find a padding in the middle of a sling to be a straitforward extension. But apparently not.
